« Part 4: Down to the Wire Part 5 of Thorsen Table series Part 6: Drawer Construction »

Obi wanted to see the cherry so here it is.

I got very little sleep last night not because I was working on the table but simply insomnia. I’ve got a work project that isn’t going well which was part of the reason I think. Anyway because of that I called in (well actually emailed in) that I’d be working from home today.

As a result I was able to take some time mid-day and get the first coat of finish on the table. I chose amber shellac to give a little richness to the cherry. It’s a little uneven in the picture, but it’s just the first coat. I’ll get at least one more coat on before I post the project tonight.

Yah working at home, I remember those days. The last year and a half was at home, My boss was in Boston, I lived in NJ. He told me I could go to the office in NJ to work if I wanted to. It was an hour comute each way.

I regretfully told him that I’d work at home.

But nice looking view of the table, I love Amber Shellac on Cherry. I like to put Danish oil on first though, to bring out any figure.

6 more hours.
